obama signed it into law in july. and back in june, i don't think that anybody was expecting that we would actually see this bill come to fruition. but within a couple of weeks following the bill was on the president's desk for signature. the primary issue to point out with map 21, is that it is a two-year bill and it does not fundamentally change federal transportation policy. you can see from the picture on the slide in the corner, that it is illustrative of the politics of the bill. this is president obama at the signing of the bill and you see representatives of teachers unions and the u.s. department of education is also in this picture and arny duncan because it included provisions on college loan interest rates and also representatives of the industry along with la mayor, since the tifia expansion and a $500 million boost to projects of natural significance with something that la lobbied for heavily to boost the program that will implement 30 years of transit projects within ten years using low-cost federal loans which we will talk about in a few slides about the tivia program

was september 11, and president obama asked for all flags to be lowered to honor everyone who was killed on 9/11. my friend bill wilson and i asked the political leaders of the castro to use the public property at harvey milk plaza, including the rainbow flag, to lower the rainbow flag, to first of all respect president obama's proclamation, and, second, to remember and honor a gay hero named mark bingham who lost his life in the fields of pennsylvania. for two years, gay activists have asked, demanded, and pleaded for public property at harvey milk plaza to simply lower a flag on occasion, especially when our president asks to do it. and when gay people say we want to honor mark bingham, we want petty vindictive political leadership in the castro to grow up. we want a public discussion about public property. because mark bingham would have had the flag lowered at harvey milk plaza, had harvey milk been alive. we simply want to lower a flag on city property. and after two years, we don't have that right. something must be done. >> president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >> good afternoon. my

to a two year rolling requirement, and the rational is -- come from the affordable act, president obama's health care bill is merited to go into effect, so it's to ensure that dollars that employers are supposed to put into these accounts go to health care and then the idea was we were going work with your office to determine once these federal regulations that come down, if there are additional changes that be made, if they come down, if you could brief those of us working on this issue, some recommendations that we should think about when president obama's health care law goes into effect, we would love to get that information. >> we will certainly do. >> we'll next ask the district attorney to -- office of the district attorney to present, followed by the treasurer, tax collector and then the city attorney, so welcome. >> good afternoon, members of the committee, i stated in our response to the grand jury report the district attorney opened a preliminary review into possible consumer fraud issues related to the collection of surcharges back in 2011. in that review is still open and p

the deferred action in regards to obama's executive order about allowing undocumented students the chance to be here without any threat of deportation for the next two years and also to get work permits. i'd like you to hear their testimonies. and how it impacts them and why i feel as a district employee why this should be a priority for all of us who work for our students and our families. so if i can end at the end as well, i'll let these speakers come up and speak to you first. >> defer action is a discretionary determination to the removal action of a person. on june 15 of this year, the secretary of homeland security announced certain people who came to this country as children and who meet several criteria may be considered for deferred action for two years. these people will be able to obtain a work authorization and renew after two years. in other words, defer action will protect undocumented youth from deportation and provide a work permit to legally work in this country. defer action is an important step in the immigration system because it allows young people to live in this co

, that was done with the idea that president obama's health care legislation would go into effect and we would soon be in a regime where i think these issues will truly be mute, so i want to make that point because there is a little bit of confusion about what it is we were doing but from my perspective, what we did put in place provide a lot of requirements for businesses to fulfill in order to make sure that employees are receiving health insurance. that being said to chairman wiener's points, i do have a number of obvious changes to the findings that were recommended to us by the civil grand jury and i must preface this by saying, i respect what the grand jury said, really in part because i don't think the findings reflect the amendments we put into place at the end of last year, if i could start going through the findings one at a time, for finding number 1, about whether the jury could not identify any governmental investigation or any government investigation that reports the number of businesses and surcharges to pay for scho, i suggest the committee state we disagree partially for the

on the television last night and he mentioned president obama who still believes despite everything in constructive cooperation i think is the phrase that he used and it came to my mind that that's exactly what we need here because of the developer, this is the kind of either/or thing, it's like transit is either bicycles or cars but actually i ride my bike, i use public transit when i can, there isn't very much, i walked here, so it sort of varied, i do what i can and i use my car, if i'm having a late dinner in the richmond, that's how life is, you can't really live where we live if you're going to go anywhere and not have a car but you don't have to do everything in the car, so it's not an either/or thing and to lose 32 spots on hill street, i can't imagine that, that's where our audience is. the other thing is we're a mixed use diverse maybe and it's not either/or, it's not if just for young hip sters who can buy condos, we have all kinds of people and i for example couldn't buy a condo in this building because i need a car, so it's not an either/or that needs some balance here and since i'm th

are at half mast by order of mayor lee and in accordance with mayor obama and so i would like to ask that we adjourn today's meeting in honor of those who lost their lives on september 11th. earlier this month, but actually late last month we finally had the first regatta of the america's cup series through august 22-26 and it was an honor to have all the teams based here at in san francisco. it's quite an amazing operation. the needs of the athletes and heart monitors that they wear and doctors that travel with them and food and diets they are on is stunning and graze to have what we believe is an amazing event going forward. so i wanted to invite michael martin, the mayor's project manager for the america's cup to say a few words how the regatta went and pitch you on attending the regatta next month. mike. >> i will certainly take that last part first and pitch anyone on coming to the regatta last month. it was a very exciting time for having worked on it for the last 20 months or so. to see it actually happen on the water was exciting and i have to say i was really as a city employee,
